Jonna Lee's vocals are otherworldly. They certainly sound different than on her solo material; I'm sure there is a lot of processing and manipulations going on. Watch the videos on YouTube to get an even further idea of her imagination running wild. This is really one of the most exciting new artists I've discovered this year, and I can't wait for more.
kin has some very strong tracks- album opener "sever", dance-y "play" and "in due order", and mystifying layered "kill" in particular. It's a short album, barely more than an EP, but the length is understandable when you know that there is a music video for every song. If you buy the digital version of the album, be sure to check out the videos on youtube (and their earlier "bounty" videos) because they are a big part of the iamamiwhoami experience!
The physical cd/dvd is handsome but minimalist, echoing the black cube in the video for "goods" and used in the band's live performances. I know I'll enjoy watching kin's videos as an arc.
After loving iamamiwhoami's online stuff for so long, I'm happy to own their debut album. I preordered it June 5, 2012 and did not receive it from Amazon until over four months later, November 7. This is a great album and it was worth the wait, but the ever-changing availability from Amazon was very frustrating. If you want the physical cd/dvd, you may do better by ordering directly from the band at towhomitmayconcern.cc and not waiting for Amazon to import more!
The album takes advantage of the listner by creating a smooth atmosphere (almost like a lullaby) with sever, and then immediately pulls you for with the agression of drops. The album does this over and over again culmenating in a pop song "goods" when is like a swedish throughback top 40 song.
There is not a note on this album that I do not like, and her vioce is very unique (though difficult to interpret sometimes)
If you like bands such as Planningtorock, Fever Ray, and even Lady Gaga, you would like this album.
And to end this review subtly: AMAZING. BEST ALBUM OF 2012. BUY IT!
(Next year, they're re-releasing their first album "bounty" in a similar way. Get that one too!)
